According to NAN, Friday’s planned meeting between the Federal Government and labor unions did not take place.
The conference was held so that long-term decisions could be made about the relief measures that would be given to Nigerians when the federal government removed the subsidy on gasoline.
Trade Union Congress President Festus Osifo said at a meeting on Wednesday that negotiations would continue on Friday.
However, a representative from one of the unions at the planned Friday meeting told reporters outside the State House that the gathering could not proceed due to a lack of quorum.
A quorum was not present at the meeting. We’re a methodical bunch who do things the right way. What then happens if a meeting has no quorum? Since there is no quorum, I must adjourn the meeting,” the official added, requesting anonymity.
EBANTAL recalls that the federal government promised to keep trying to find ways to make up for the loss of the fuel subsidy.
Compressed natural gas (CNG) infrastructure, public transportation improvements, and eco-friendly power sources all fall under this category of actions.
